Little Rock Museum to exhibit George Washington’s inaugural Bible

January 28, 2013

So, I have a little riddle for all my Bible know-it- all friends (and all of my personal pals who already, like me, know the answer just better shut up!) Do you suppose that this KJV Bible owned and used by that great Evangelical George Washington (OK, I am getting carried away with myself), who was also an Anglican, just might happen to contain the “other” books also read by Roman Catholics?

The link follows this slice from the Democrat-Gazette story.

The Historic Arkansas Museum said George Washington’s inaugural Bible will be on display for a limited time in February. The bible will be on exhibit from 5-8 p.m. Feb. 8 and from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Feb. 9.

The bible is on loan from St. John’s Lodge No. 1 in New York, and will be featured as part of Historic Arkansas Museum’s coming exhibit, Treasures of Arkansas Freemasons, 1838-2013. The exhibit will run Feb. 8 through July 12 in the Study Gallery.

Washington’s inaugural bible was used in the inaugural ceremonies of Warren G. Harding, Dwight Eisenhower, Jimmy Carter and George H. W. Bush.
